What’s on the book-genda for this month? Here’s what I’ve been enjoying:
On the Banks of Plum Creek (Laura Ingalls Wilder) – We finally finished Farmer Boy, and the boys have been excited to find out what’s happening with Laura and Mary Ingalls. I read this one as a kid but basically have no recollection of it, so I am looking forward to rediscovering it with them.
Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full: Gospel Meditations for Busy Moms (Gloria Furman) — I picked this one up at a church conference last month, and I am loving it. This is a book that encourages you in Christ without making you feel worthless for not doing more. It’s really speaking to my heart right now and offering much needed refreshment.
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! The Story of Pop Music From Bill Haley to Beyonce (Bob Stanley) – As a music lover and someone who grew up on the “oldies,” this book is everything I could want in an examination of pop music. My Spotify playlists are a direct reflection of what chapter I’m currently reading. This big thick book looks a little intimidating, but it’s worth the investment of your time.
Pretty in Pink: The Golden Age of Teenage Movies (Jonathan Bernstein) – Everything that Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! is, this book…is not. It’s not horrible or anything, but it’s basically just a retelling of every major teenage movies of the 80s, and a few minor ones as well. I am slogging through it because I want to finish it, but since I already know what happens in The Breakfast Club, I’m having a hard time staying interested.
